CLEO (Compact Library Extension Organizer) is a Firefox extension that works with FEBE* to package any number of extensions/themes into a single, installable .xpi file.
CLEO allows you to organize individual extensions
/themes by combining them together into a single, installable file
. This file can be used to install or restore a collection of extensions and/or themes.
You may have a list of your favorite extensions/themes that you would like to share with others. With CLEO, you can gather them all together into a single file
(called, perhaps, 'My favorite add-ons') and post it on a webpage or email it to family, friends and co-workers. They can install the whole batch with a just a couple of clicks! (e.g., File > Open Fileâ€¦)
Useful tool for developers: I, as an extension developer
, have several different firefox profiles
. Whenever I start a new extension, I create a new profile for testing, debugging, etc. In this profile, I like to have a dozen or so developer related extensions installed
. With CLEO, I can package all these extensions together and install them into a new profile with just a few clicks.
Once installed, CLEO is available from the firefox tools menu
under the FEBE* submenu. (FEBE must be installed for CLEO to work.)
